Creating a standout LinkedIn Profile

Step 1 – Create a Powerful Headline

Your Headline is one of the most important parts of your profile.

Other than your name, it is the first piece of data that people will see.

By default, LinkedIn populates your headline with your current job title and employer

BUT this field is fully customizable.

You should take full advantage of this to show how amazing you are!

Remember, it’s not just about you building your network or you looking for a job here, it’s about you positioning yourself as a leading Treasurer, standing out amongst your peers, your bosses, your colleagues.

EXERCISE (Tip 1) – 5 Minutes

So, what I would like you to do now is to have a think about your own headline…

Make a list of all your specific skills so whether that be your system knowledge, what regions you cover, what else makes you unique?

Then choose the top two or three which you feel most important to highlight and then work them into a headline of no more than 120 characters.
